senator bob menendez, using the arrest of an unpaid intern in his office as the latest example of why we need comprehensive immigration reform. that intern and up documented immigrant and registered sex offender now faces deportation. comprehensive immigration reform is expected to take center stage in the new year and it feels like maybe now, more than at any time in the last decade, there is actual real momentum behind making significant changes. so, has this last election set both parties on the true course to reform and will this be a topic that boards us to use washington's dirtiest c-word, compromise? what were you thinking? the guest spot is jose antonio vargas, pulitzer prize-winning journalist, founder of define american, an organization dedicated to bring new voices to the immigration conversation. back in 2011, jose revealed himself as an undocumented worker. thank you so much for being with us. >> oh, thank you so much for having me. >> so as an activist, looking at the political landscape right now, knowing that republicans still have control of congress, what is kind of

loud music from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead. >> that was nbc's bob costas at halftime of last night's eagles game offering his thoughts on the javon belcher tragedy after he took his own life this weekend as well as the life of his girlfriend, kasandra perkins, mother of his 3-month-old child. the murder suicide has reignited the violence in football, football and drugs and athletes and guns and, of course, guns and violence. let's backspin on it. i'm a little emotional after reading that. my first thought here is bob costas is in his right to say whatever he wants to say and hold whatever position he wants to hold. i personally have a pretty nuanced position on this issue in general. you know, i think the nra, gun owners of america go too far in imposing any kind of restriction on gun rights. they think you should be able to own anything in any number and carry it in any place at any time, and that i disagree with but what i would say is let's leave the constitution out this because i think that's a complicated argument as well. what i would say is if you wan

. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may

pursuing that give you that grade a? >> bob casey and kristen gillibrand, let's start with them. all the senators who made our list are doing two things. one is that they're either sponsors or voting for bills family friendly. they also have to qualify by having tremendous policies for their own employees. most people don't realize that the employees of senators and representatives are on their own to negotiate their own benefits with their senator or representative employer. so how do they treat their own employees is something that we wanted to look at, too. these senators are giving great maternity benefits, flexible work arrangements and under such tough circumstances because these are extreme jobs, as you all know. >> carol, i was pleased to see you have some republicans on this list and some republican men to boot. what can the party, the gop do to learn from these guys as they try to overcome that so-called war on women that they had to combat over the past years going forward? what great things did these republican guys do that they should take a page from? >> the republicans
